Best Golf Courses in the World

The course of a long career can have its stressful moments. It’s how you handle those stress levels that ultimately bring you back to reality.  Many people enjoy a game of golf.  Why? Golf takes place outside. A golf course can be very peaceful, quiet, and a great scenic experience.  Golf is a calm sport.  There’s no running, jumping, or throwing.  It’s simply swinging a club.  Lastly, you can always arrange to play with friends, colleagues, or family members.  Its peaceful and slow enough that you can catch up on family or talk business.  However, when people ultimately retire, they look for something to do in order to pass time by all the while having fun.  Many retirees, specifically men, play a lot of golf.  Let’s take a look at some of the best retirement places overseas for golfers according to
